I also gotta believe that amongst those thousands of RV's, there a re a few homebrewers enjoying some HB on Saturday/Sundays.

Anyone else a fan (or growing fan) of the races?
Well, I was really into NASCAR when I was younger and was a huge Dale Earnhardt fan, the day he died was the last time I really watched NASCAR, since then I'll check in on it here and there, but not like I used to.

I'm more of a short track, dirt racing fan, 410 Sprint Cars and the World of Outlaws is where it's at. I ran on a pit-crew for a 410 Sprint for 4 years and loved every minute of it....

I enjoyed going to Knoxville Iowa for the Knoxville Nationals and the local tracks every weekend during my summers in my teen years.

I have dabbled in quarter midgets and I used to race BMX as a kid.

Racing, not NASCAR, has been a huge interest of mine for a long time...

I worked at a Rod and Custom shop and the owner used to collection, rebuild and resell old sprint cars from back in the day and a lot of his cars are in museums and sports bars around the nation.

Last year Bud and Junior part ways. Now Tony and Home Depot. What next Gordon and Dupont? I didn't mind Junior leaving DEI so much. He was in a lousy situation with Teresa. But Tony leaving Gibbs really stinks. I know he's a Chevy guy and he's going to be an owner but it's going to be real weird not seeing Tony in the 20.

Now I have to get all new hats and shirts! I think Tony did it because he is going to have majority say in what goes on. Gene Haas is serving prison time for tax evasion and I heard it is to much for his wife to handle on her own. I know they get there engines and tranny's from Hendrick so I look for them to compete with Tony on board. I also heard yesterday that tony is going to bring Ryan Newman over with him and there two new sponsors will be UPS and Office Depot. Gordon just extended his contract with dupont 3 more years.

You guys see that group of "heat races" at Indy?

The last 10 lap shoot out was ok. But, other than that, I'd be writing and asking for my money back if I'd bought a ticket for that race.

Nascar is gonna have to do something with Goodyear. That's two races this year they have screwed up royally.

Serious-GY needs to go. Time for them to step up to another tire. I'm not a huge NASCAR fan-but I like to see the drama played out on the track.

A couple of racing random thoughts...

I don't think I've received my tickets for the fall race in Charlotte? Need to check on that.

Just noticed that my "local" short track was recently sold (about time, tbh): www.southernnational.net. Looks like SLM's are returning and hopefully the schedule will pick up!

Also just bought tickets to see the World of Outlaws late models in Fayetteville next Friday - can't wait!

I Have two brothers that live just outside Charlotte. We always go to the track. But the last couple of years we have just been camping (and partying) But, we don't buy tickets to the race anymore. A friend brings his projector and sets up a big screen in the campground and we watch the race there. You get the race atmosphere without the race hassle. It's a lot of fun and much more comfortable. And our bathrooms are much cleaner and less crowded. Besides, I don't think the racing is all that good there. But, that's just my opinion.

I think these guys are going to be back in Charlotte this fall. I'm going to try to go. I watched it on Speed last year and it looked like some good racing.
